I’m excited to show you the progress we’ve made on Baby Conley’s room. It’s not really finished yet. For one thing, my mom is working on a baby quilt that will add some color and pattern and shake things up a bit. But let’s just remember where we started, and soak in all the pepto-bismol pink glory:
That was before we moved in – three walls were chocolate brown, one was the pepto pink. It took just a few coats of primer and paint to cover those shades. But here we are today:
We found this dresser on the curb and paid $30 for it and the corresponding mirror a few years ago. Brian helped me sand and paint it. I absolutely love it.
Look at that hardware!
On top of the dresser, we have our changing pad, a box of sentimental things from the baby showers, nautical hooks, and shelf. Those little baby bonnets belonged to Brian!
The little booties were also his, and the New Testament, a gift from his great-grandma, and the crocheted balls, made by his great-grandma.
That ultrasound picture is probably my favorite. He was snuggled up against the placenta, with one hand over his face. We couldn’t get a 3D ultrasound as a result, but it sure was cute.
All of the artwork in the gallery wall was free. Thank you Pinterest, and generous bloggers!
The navy heart printable is from Lemon Jitters (other colors available), the Ralph Waldo Emerson wanderlust quote is from Oh So Lovely (other colors and quotes available), and the hymn lyrics are from Danielle Burkleo. They read “Chart and compass come from Thee, Wond’rous Sovreign of the sea, Jesus, Savior, pilot me.”
I picked up the crate in the corner at Home Depot, and originally planned to hang it on the wall and use it as a shelf. But then we actually bought a shelf. So now, I’m not quite sure what to do with it. Maybe it will hold books? We already have a cute whale toy box. Any ideas?
